I wish I had known about Joe’s book several years ago. As an attorney I know first-hand how difficult it can be to collect on a judgment. In one case I had many years ago I sent a judgment to the local Sheriff’s office to execute. Whenever I called about it I was told “don’t you worry, we have 30 days to execute that order.” I had someone from the office drive by the business and they confirmed it was still up and running. BUT on the 30th day when the Sheriff’s office went to do their job they found crickets. There was a padlock on the door. The lights were out. The place was empty- cleaned out.
